This interview talks about OCW and finding powder nodes before messing with seating depth.

That wouldn't work as you would come in & out of tune with the testing.
Your method fits my earlier radio analogy.
You do your ladder, which is barrel tune, with seating pulled from your butt.
Better is to do tuning with at least optimum coarse seating, a prerequisite, so that you won't throw up shotgun patterns to interpret.
And, I assume, no chrono during the ladder test? (just to be clear)If it were me I'd do a ladder test from at least 300 yards first. I see no need to mess around testing a random charge.
It takes 10-12 shots for a ladder and puts you in the ballpark.
Dang it Magoo! Don't go to the grave with your secret process....lol We need all the help we can get! I always enjoy reading others processes even though I am far from being a great shooter or loader. It's that I learn more all the time that keeps me intrigued. And I am no spring chicken. Old enough to rock my Grumpy old vet shirt!Years ago, I found a way to make almost any rifle shoot much better with very little work. Never got a chance to capitalize on it one bit- life happens- but I've kept it under my hat for over 20 years and I'll be damned if I'm giving that secret out until I've exhausted every means to get it patented and do something with it
